Guiding Families Through Difficult Disputes
Probate is already frustrating enough. Emotions are typically high after the passing of a family member, and when complications arise, the events that follow may make or break relationships. At the Law Office of Justin S. Eppler, LLC, we understand that every family dynamic is different, and there are no cookie-cutter solutions to your issues.
There is a lot at stake for you in a probate dispute, whether it is an item of sentimental value or a substantial financial inheritance. Many times, the only way to effectively resolve these matters is in the courtroom. Our lawyer provides aggressive representation for those in Anchorage who are facing this difficult situation.
Like most people after the death of a family member, you may want to grieve in your own way and move forward with your life. The last thing you need is a drawn-out legal battle. However, it is important to protect your rights and the wishes of your loved one, especially if you feel something is amiss with the estate plan or the probate process. Some of the most common reasons for probate litigation include these:
- Undue influence: You believe someone coerced or threatened your loved one to sign a will that does not represent your loved one’s wishes.
- Mental capacity issues: You feel your loved one did not have the mental soundness to legally execute a will.
- Will contests: You or another family member dispute the unequal distribution of your loved one’s estate or other elements of the estate plan.
- Executor or administrator issues: You disagree with the appointment of the estate administrator or suspect the representative has breached his or her duties to the estate, or you are the estate representative facing these allegations from family members.
There may be other issues that you feel are worth fighting for, and your first step is to determine if you have cause for probate litigation. Our compassionate attorney will listen to your concerns and discuss with you the alternatives for bringing about a positive solution so you can return to your normal life.
